Gumeracha ED could re-open after pledge to review funding model

The Gumeracha Hospital has been without an emergency department for much of the pandemic.

The Gumeracha Hospital emergency department may soon reopen after the Federal Government committed to reviewing a rural doctors funding classification which has disadvantaged the Gumeracha community.
The Federal Government will review Gumeracha’s classification under the Modified Monash Model (MMM), which determines incentives offered to doctors working in a particular area, based on its remoteness.
